    "The Message"

    Stepping up to speak into the mouth piece
    hoping it's the right piece to move someone
    to save someone
    to possibly bless someone
    with what my experiences has done
    taken the lesson
    felt deep within the message
    that flow
    and how the lips caress those spoken words
    it's not what's said in this type of love
    it's how it's heard
    that floetry spoken hearts written in blood
    stretched across secret pages
    locked in composition books sometimes
    consequences when some minds don't mind being naked
    and naked I am everytime my flow is repeated in your mind
    you can see my soul
    where sometimes I'm blind
    vulnerable
    and it's the truth, or so I'm told
    sometimes a man's words has to be bold
    sometimes times are hard
    I couldn't sleep if I wasn't able to speak what's in me
    When a voice is amplified over adjusted trebles
    and if a bassline fits
    when a life is made to rhyme
    I skip beats sometimes to help
    someone find peace with decisions
    I skip beats sometimes to *****
    over wounds self inflicted
    I skip to make known my body, mind and soul's addictions
    spit for the right to co sign afflictions
    or maybe even just to maintain
    til the music stops
    until the beat ceases and still I be accountable for something
    and then is when the morals kicks in
    the bigger picture to decypher truth
    and what it really means to you
    double meaning in the many ways I try to hold you
    off the verses
    after curses
    before the periods
    after the quotations
    and the composition book closes

    still the message

    And the message comes, sometimes in exposing ourselves, there is such a freeing vibe in that, that others feel the vibe and become a bit free themselves. Sorry for the ramble, just the way it touched me...I like your style.
